If you, a friend or loved one has been accused of violating Florida Statute 893.135 by trafficking in methamphetamine, the law office of Finebloom & Haenel can provide the defense strategy needed to obtain the best result for the situation at hand.
Methamphetamine trafficking is determined by the amount possessed by the individual. The punishment correlates with the amount you possess, and the more you possess, the more jail time you face. Trafficking charges have mandatory minimums. This is the smallest amount of time you can spend in prison. Mandatory minimums are DAY FOR DAY (which means no time off for good behavior)!! The mandatory minimums for methamphetamine are as follows:
- If you are caught with between 14 and 28 grams, the minimum prison sentence is 3 years and a $50,000 fine.
- If you are caught with between 28 and 200 grams, the minimum prison sentence is 7 years and a $100,000 fine
- If you are caught with between 200 and 400 grams, the minimum prison sentence is 15 years and a $250,000 fine.
- If you are caught with over 400 grams of methamphetamine, the State can charge it as a capital felony punishable by death!
Trafficking charges can be tricky. There is often many defenses available to the individual that can not be explored by inexperienced attorneys or attorneys who do not practice criminal law full time.
